Tension side table

A different colour finish for the side table from the Borders of Assembly collection. The iridescent colour changes from every angle - from blue to gold and from purple to green.

The manufacturing industry is using standard sized material, and every machine used works according to these sizes. Instead of seeing this as a limitation, it became an inspiration to search for new possibilities. 

Sheet metal is often folded to rule out it’s flexible properties and to create stiffness in the material. This flexibility can also be used in our advantage. By combining this feature together with high precision manufacturing, a form language evolved: the flexibility of metal is used to lock pieces together due to the sheet’s force of bending back to it’s original shape.
